Nigel Farage: 'Grossly unfair to call UKIP racist'

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has described attempts to paint his party as racist as "wholly unjustified and grossly unfair".

Mr Farage also said he was "really rather bored" with the media's "obsession" that depicts UKIP as a racist party.

His comments came after shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna told the Independent on Sunday that a "virus of racism" runs through UKIP.

But Mr Farage described the claim as "complete and utter rubbish".
